When I read Reunited by TT Kove as part of the Kiss Me Quick collection earlier this year, I liked the story but most of my complaints were about the history of the characters and how I didn't get to know them at all. This story is that history, a prequel focused on how Damian and Josh met when they were much younger and a little more about their respective mental health issues, which is at the center of their relationship and both stories.

This book was sad, painful and depressing with just a slight ray of hope at the end. I normally like angsty books but this one wasn’t fueled by sexual lust and chemistry. This book had characters that were tormented and lived in the depths of despair. I applaud the author for this story even though it was rather heartbreaking to read. I kept reminding myself that there are people living in pain like this and I am glad someone is giving them a voice.

I really like the author's writing style. This is my second book by her, and as usual the writing flows nicely. Reading this, I felt like I stepped into the middle of the story based on Damian's and Josh reaction towards each other. They meet and it's not a care in the world about getting to know each other. I really liked Damian as a character, I mean he's 18 years old, but he seems so much mature. He went through a traumatic experience as well. When it comes to his history, I think t

4.5 Heart Review by Carissa

No life is perfect, but Josh’s life is barely even liveable. Even after the man who raped and abused him is sent to prison, Josh can’t seem to escape the fear and loathing that that man brought into his life. When one day it all gets to be too much, Josh disappears from his home, and winds up under a tree, wet, alone, and pretty much at the end of his rope.

When Damian stumbles upon Josh, he doesn’t know what to do. But he knows that he can’t just leave the guy there, s

Warning: if you love sunshine and rainbows then this book is not for you.

Whew, this took me awhile to finish and not because of the writing, not the story those were both awesome. The subject matter just broke my heart, these boys made their way into my heart so to see them hurting was really really hard.

Both Josh and Damian had horrible horrible childhoods, they meet and start dating and find themselves dealing with issues...Josh's Borderline Personality Disorder and Damian' s asexuality and it

Enjoyed this prequel to Reunited. While it was nice to get more information on Damien and Josh's history, as with Reunited, I felt this story had more to tell and could have been longer. This segment tells briefly of their beginning, but leaves much unknown leading up to the events in Reunited.

Note: Review of first two books of the series

Scarred Souls and Inked Souls might be part of the same series but they couldn’t be more different when it comes to the tone of the two tales. This isn’t a bad thing and in fact shows the strength of the author in being able to successfully depict two very different relationships.

Book one features Damian and Josh, both very damaged young men with horrific pasts. They meet when Damian sees Josh crying in the rain and invites him to sleep with him. He d

Scarred Souls is one of those rare reads where not connecting with the main characters was a good thing. Why? Because both Josh and Damian bear major scars – emotional and physical – and not connecting with them was paramount for my sanity. Not connecting with the characters did not keep me from feeling their pain, their frustration, their calm, their happiness, or their love, it just kept me from feeling them with the same intensity that they did, especially Josh. Scarred Souls is an extremely ...more
